What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith

In the verbal inspiration of the 66 books of the Bible. God preserved His Word in its original writing and we believe it is without error and is the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. We here at Calvary Baptist Church preach and teach solely from the King James Bible. The Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God’s plan and purpose in the ages.

In the eternal security of the true believer, and that it is the plan of God for such believers to walk after the Spirit and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.


The immersion of the believer in water under the authority of the New Testament church to signify our faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We do not believe that baptism saves. Baptism is an outward expression of an inward faith and change.

The Lord’s Supper

The unleavened bread and grape juice represent the body and blood of Christ.  They are not miraculously or mysteriously changed into the literal body and blood of Christ.  Baptized believers, after examining their personal relationship with Christ, can partake of the Lord’s Supper.  At Calvary Baptist Church the Lord’s Supper is celebrated once every quarter.

In One and only One true and living God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-eternal and co-equal from all eternity, each with distinct personalities but with one nature.

That salvation is “by grace,” plus nothing and minus nothing. The conditions to salvation are repentance and faith. We further believe that a soul is saved when Christ is received as personal Savior and Lord.  It is at that moment that the Holy Spirit imparts eternal life and indwells that new believer.

That a New Testament church is a local group of saved, baptized believers, united for His purpose and knowledge and spreading of the Word of God, including world-wide missions. We believe it to be completely independent with no other person, group, or body having any authority, right of intervention or control whatsoever over or within the local church.

In the Person and work of the Holy Spirit which includes conviction of sin, regeneration of sinners, and indwelling of the believer.

In the deity and virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, coexistent with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He came to the world, born of a virgin, suffered, died, was buried and rose again bodily, and ascended to the right hand of the Father.

In the visible, personal and premillennial return of Jesus Christ, the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead at His coming. We further believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
